Ormyrid Wasp

A female ormyrid wasp, possibly Ormyrus nitidulus  = Ormyrus tubulosus (Hymenoptera: Ormyridae).  According to this page at the Hedgerowmobile site, there are only 4 species of Ormyridae on the UK checklist.  There are some good pictures of O. nititudulus = O.tubulosus by P. Falatico half-way down this page at Alain Ramel's site.
